The Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots are the pride of two great sports cities that have rich sports traditions. But, being from the big cities that they are, a large amount of trash is generated by these cities each year. While we’ll have to wait to see which team achieves the ultimate glory in football on Sunday, February 4th, we can determine which city creates the most trash during championship celebrations… Let’s evaluate.
The last championship parade in Philly was in 2008 when the Phillies won the World Series. An estimated 50 tons of trash was cleaned up after the celebration.
Over the years, Boston had its share of parades, but the Patriots’ Super Bowl parade in 2017 generated approximately 30-35 tons of trash.
Boston has the perception of being a large city, but in comparison to Philly, it’s much smaller. Its 687,584 total residents are ranked 22nd overall in population. Philadelphia is the 6th largest city in the country and has a population of 1,573,688. That total more than doubles the population of Boston. More people usually leads to more trash potential.
While neither city would like to be recognized for the amount of trash that they generate, we should all show appreciation to the garbage men and city sanitation workers, who will clean up after the winners at their championship parade on Tuesday, February 6th.
